Auburn rancher, Bhot November 25 by his son Edwin. 23. a University of Washington praduate, died at the Auburn Hospital late last night. The son Is in tho county Jail here charged with first degree assault. W A! to compel Congress to abolish Its expensive funerals for deceased members is being pressed by Chairman Sumners of tho House judiciary committee. Ho has Just sent a letter to Chairman Sandlln of tho House legislative appropriations subcommittee, condemning congressional funerals and urging that Congress take action now forbidding further expenditures for this purpose. ' Representative Sumners In his letter called attention to a resent United Press dispatch which reported on tho basis of the latest unpublished accounts of tho clerk of the House that train fares for tho funeral of the late Speaker Ix>ngworth amounted to $0422.20. Sumners said he knew Longworth would have disapproved of that. Tho Texas representative has introduced several bills and resolutions to end this 1 source of expense which averages about $1600 per funeral. "I am enclosing herewith a United Press story, and you will note tho comment that the train faros to tho Longworth funeral cost 16422.20." Sumners said In his letter. "During Mr. Longworth's lifetime I talked with him about this resolution I was trying to get through to stop these congressional funerals at public expense, nnd he agreed with me thoroughly. If he hnd been alive he would hnvo disapproved this expenditure of tho public funds, "I hope that a provision will bo Incorporated In the legislative appropriation bill prohibiting the expenditure of any public money In connection with these funeralH." Sumnors reiterated what ho said when he offered his first anti-funeral bill: "In tho days when popular respect for government was held largely through tho awe which pomp and splendor and pageantry attached to official personages and positions there may have been some real Justification for this sort of thing, but among a people who are supposed to follow principles as distinguished from persons, and where public officials are merely private persona temporarily called to tho public service, the expenditure of public funds In connection with congressional funerals cannot be Justified. "Besides, the custom makes necessary that members of Congress aban- the discharge of public duties I believe most everybody now recognizes It Is not a proper method of showing respect for a deceased member. H is not a proper expenditure of public funds. It Is not a proper uso of the time of members of Con- gross. This custom Is unfair both to tho deceased In whoso honor It Is supposed to bo observed and of tbo living to continue It. ' "Tho majority of tho members of Congress wnnt to abolish this custom. Tho difficulty Is that It Is a thing 1 which Is established and when a member dies tho customary resolution Is brought in as a matter of routine, expressing regret, providing for sending a committee, etc. "To defeat such a resolution carry- Ing out a custom older than tho government would bo an overt act of disrespect shown In tho presence of death. Nobody wants to do that. In rder to avoid that and to bring the matter to an end when nothing of that sort would be involved, I have Introduced this resolution which gives the House «n opportunity to determine the matter of policy free from any possible application to an Individual case."

This agency also declared that most Industries aro "holding tenaciously" to the gains thiit have been made, thus counteracting the poor showing of commodity markets. Bradatrcet's asserted that business men In general f ce i they have no cause for complaint In spite of the fact that the Christmas season will probably go down in business hlntory as the poorest on record. Tho volume of wholesale and retail trade, is estimated by the agency at slightly below the previous year with dollar totals down from 20 to 25 per cent. Tho most unfavorable factor, It .is pointed out, Is the drastically deflated levels of farm prices, which aro having a decidedly adverse effect on purchasing power In the agricultural regions.
